BREAKING: Jess's Dream, by Curlin o/o Rachel Alexandra, is now a father! Here's his first foal o/o Redbud Road! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5e7d4ce86d28e1b95d62d4398c3097e01d95261b6f04557469a2d52f22065369.jpg
I am looking past this Saturday to the next "World Cup" - in Dubai - and with no Gun Runner, no Sharp Azteca (who will go in another race that day), no Stellar Wind - who do we really have running in that race that will be worth anything? It would seem like such a race is either ripe for an upset (I'd love to see War Story pull it off) or a victory by a local horse that has been running at Meydan all season.
By the way, is it fair to say that Black Caviar, and not Kincsem, is the - and this is the key word - UNDISPUTED winningest undefeated horse of all time? Kincsem won at least two races in runoffs after dead heats - in an era with no photo finish. It would really seem to me that such an undefeated record (where some races were scored "dead heats") in the pre photo-finish era, cannot be considered indisputable. Take a look at the photo of one of the most famous photo finishes of all time - the 2016 DC Distaff. Is it fair to say that, in the pre-photo era, that judges, perhaps determined to keep Songbird's undefeated record intact, would have declared a dead heat? A photo finish showed that she lost by at most two inches. So, maybe Wikipedia (and others) should put a bunch of asterisks of Kincsem's undefeated record.
Winx, who had won just one of 16 barrier trials throughout her career entering Monday, didn’t improve upon that record in a spin around Rosehill Garden. But trainer Chris Waller said the mare accomplished what was needed, gaining baseline fitness ahead of her return to the races next month.“To me, ...Read More
  • Iwasatthe78Belmont · If she wins her first race this year, and if World Approval does also, then I think maybe Sheikh Makhtoum should sweeten the pot (like, add $3 million or more) if both show up for the Dubai Turf. · 1 hour ago
I think Gun Runner and West Coast will flex their muscles, but watch for Gunnervera!
Dave Norton, a NYRA clocker, has brief video of Montauk back at the track and galloping for Pletcher a few days ago at Palm Beach Downs. I'll try to link it, but it can be found by Googling "Dave Norton twitter". https://twitter.com/play_da_ponies?lang=en
Well at least Amy's Challenge is something from Minnesota that can win on the road.
In his typically professional manner Monday, Gun Runner turned in the last timed workout for his career finale in the Saturday’s $16 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational with a half-mile breeze in :49 at Gulfstream Park. Gun Runner, co-owned by Winchell Thoroughbreds and Three ...Read More

won impressively in 2nd start off layoff.
Debuts Friday for Juddmonte/Baffert. A 500k purchase has worked well leading up to debut. Half to a stakes placed filly has that typical Uncle Mo look to her. I expect to see her run well from what I hear

97 BSF for Amy’s Challenge❤️
12/28/2017. Date that both Curlin’s Honor and Solomini last worked. There were several horses that came down with that fever at Santa Anita so I’m not too worried yet about Solomini. But Curlin’s Honor- Casse hasn’t really said much other than “there was a minor issue” but “he’ll be back”. Doesn’t look good.
Seeking the Soul can handle the sprint BEWARE
well now that all the Hype is out of the way = this race is not 1 1/2 mile's = this race sets up for the one and only Seeking The Soul most have forgotten about Creator
wow he come's from out of that 1 m !/2 that Creator smashed back in 2016 grrrrr
Well good luck with that. Shug is just too "laid back" with the Phipps horses. How much longer shall we wait to see Domain,PersonalTime,My Dream,Fast Talking,On Patrol,Bail Out run. It's the same story year after year. I'm just talking out of frustration, but he needs to do something different. All these horses simply cannot be that far behind in their development. I could be wrong.Not to mention Home It Tiz and Breaking the Rules. The latter just made it back to training but really!!!! Let's see what happens.
So ready :)
